LAPD Lt. Mike Harrigan is a good cop battling both an oppressive heat wave and a gang war between two rival drug cartels. But suddenly this war turns very ugly ... and very macabre with armed men being slaughtered in a span of minutes; of victims being skinned or decapitated.
And Harrigan starts to believe that there is something else out there. A third party stalking these gangsters. Something strong. Something armed with unearthly weapons. Something ... alien.
